Remembering Orlando Victim 'Top Hat Eddie'
Eddie Sotomayor was 34 when he died at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on Sunday. Travel company owner Al Ferguson remembers his employee as a trailblazer in the gay travel industry, organizing the first gay cruise to Cuba this year.
Sotomayor became known in LGBT circles nationally as #tophateddie because he always wore a top hat at travel company events.
